Sava i Stanimir Jeremić “Moravac” from Sava i Stanimir Jeremić (Jugoton 1974) —this classic LP from the 1970s captures the "classic" Serbian sound. Jeremic was the most famous frula player of his time and revived interest in it for use in bandsBuy it!
Zoran Andrejić “Harmonikaška igra” from Zoran Andrejić uz instrmentalnu svog ansambla (Beograd Disk) —some of the most idiomatic Serbian music in the 60s, 70s, and 80s came out on 45 rpm discs.

Perica Simonović “Dunavski Vihor” from Perica i instrumentalna pratnja narodnog orkestra Novice Negovanovića (Beograd Disk) —"Perica" was a recording star and child prodigy.

duet Lukić-Stanšić “Trnavka kolo” from Momci sa Oplenica uz ansambl Dragana Aleksandrića (Beograd Disk) —another 45 rpm disc. Accordion ("harmonika" in Serbian) duets were popular from the time of Radojka & Tineta Zivkovic. They are difficult because the heavy ornamentation of the tunes has to be played exactly.Buy it!

Zarko Milanović “Cigansko Kolo” from Zapisano U Vremenu 1 (RTS/PCP 2004) —the title means "gypsy" kolo or line dance. The chromatic nature of the tunes is probably what is referred to. Milanovic was not, to my knowledge, RomBuy it!
